Emblem of Yemen

The national emblem of Yemen depicts a golden eagle with a scroll between its claws. On the scroll is written the name of the country in Arabic: الجمهورية اليمنية‎‎ or Al-Jumhuriyyah Al-Yamaniyah ("The Yemeni Republic"). The chest of the eagle contains a shield that depicts a coffee plant and the Marib Dam, with seven blue wavy stripes below. The flagstaffs on the right and left of the eagle hold the Flag of Yemen.


North Yemen

From 1945 to 1990, Yemen was split into North and South. The North had an emblem more similar to the present day one, and its shield has similarities with the shield of the former Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen.

South Yemen

The South had an emblem with the pan-Arab "Eagle of Saladin" (similar to the coats of arms of Egypt, Iraq, and the former coats of arms of Libya and Syria).
